Did you receive your English Language Learning Assistant 1 Certificate of Recognition more than 2 years ago? Do you have some other training or experience in the field of ELL? In either case, this one-day bridging workshop offers a way to determine your readiness to take the upcoming session of the English Language Learning Assistant 2 Certificate of Recognition. It gives you an opportunity to share what you already know and have done in the field of English language teaching as well as to demonstrate your own English language proficiency. This workshop provides an in depth look at the Alberta K-12 ESL Proficiency Benchmarks.
Although work with these benchmarks continues in the English Language Learning Assistant 2 Certificate of Recognition, a solid introduction to these benchmarks and how they can be used to leverage language learning is essential prior to registration for the English Language Learning Assistant 2 Certificate of Recognition.
English proficiency of Canadian Language Benchmark 8 is highly recommended to succeed in this workshop and both of the ELL Assistant Certificates of Recognition. Participants who need to strengthen their own academic listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in English are encouraged to do so prior to registration.
If you have taken the English Language Learning Assistant 1 Certificate of Recognition in the past, you will get a 30% discount when you register for the English Language Learning Assistant 2 - Bridging Workshop.
